Obamas get ready to rock the luau

This is about a politician and his wife, but don’t worry, this won’t be about a wandering politician and his peccadilloes.

President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and their daughters went to Fort McNair this morning to help assemble what the White House says will be a total of 15,000 backpacks for children of armed services personnel.

According to the media pool reports, Michelle Obama made brief remarks and previewed tonight’s luau picnic for members of Congress.

“We’ve got a great picnic planned -- a luau -- some great hula dancers,” she said, then demonstrated the dance.

"Try that again," said the president, who was born in Hawaii and should know.
